Studying the teeth, researchers concluded the three new genera, which represent the bulk of the undescribed Friars Formation omomyoid sample at SDNHM, range in size from 113 to 796 grams and are most likely related to a group of extinct species comprising the primate subfamily Omomyinae.
Gunnelltarsius randalli was named for Gregg Gunnell, the researchers' late colleague and expert on Eocene mammals, and for SDNHM fossil collections manager Kesler Randall.
